ditto. I bought an Eee with Xandros(?) Linux, but installed Ubuntu after a
week. It might as well have come with XP.
Check if the wifi card works well in Linux.

A lot of people have found it worthwhile to buy netbooks from the US. e.g.
from Amazon with a forwarding service.
You will find a broader choice at least. You'll probably want one with a
international warranty.
Check Amazon to see what is available, and whirlpool for discussion.
